Scottish Opera announce new programme for 2014-15

Posted 14 May 2014

Scottish Opera's next season has been revealed. New productions include Gluck's Orfeo ed Eurydice and James MacMillan's modern masterpiece Inés de Castro.

The mainstage season of five operas starts in October when Sandrine Anglade will make her Scottish Opera debut directing Rossini's Cenerentola, a new co-production with Opèra National du Rhin. 2015 begins with a new production of James MacMillan's Inés de Castro, directed by Olivia Fuchs. In February, Ashley Page - former Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet - will direct and choreograph a new production of Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice

The creative team behind 2013's acclaimed La traviata - director Annilese Miskimmon, designer Nicky Shaw and lighting designer Mark Jonathan - returns to bring Janácek's Jenufa to Scottish Opera audiences in a new co-production with the Danish company  Den Jyske Opera of Aarhus. And the season comes to a close with a revival of Peter Watson's 5-star production of Verdi's grand Il trovatore.

General Director Alex Reedijk said "With such a varied and dramatic programme I hope people will be tempted to come to opera for the first time. A particular highlight for me will be welcoming James MacMillan back to Scottish Opera. It's a great honour for us that he will conduct Inés de Castro for the first time, and that, 19 years after its world premiere, he will take this opportunity to revisit aspects of this important opera. These performances will be genuinely special evenings for Scottish Opera and our audiences."

We will be posting further details over the next few days.
